Please join us for #GivingMUSEday and participate in Giving Tuesday's global day of generosity


#GivingMUSEday Is Right Around The Corner

The Conservancy is asking for support in an End of Year Challenge for our #GivingMUSEday. Pinnacle Financial Partners has pledged to match dollar for dollar up to $2,000 in donations

Your gift will help further our work as we bring life to the Centennial Park of tomorrow. The next phase of improvements will focus on the most prominently used features of the park and will include re-engineering the soil and drainage of the Great Lawn, updates to the band shell, providing for a new trail system surrounding the edges of Lake Watauga and adding a design system for the night-time lighting of the exterior of the Parthenon. Your donations will also support free programs like our Kidsville at the Parthenon, The Parthenon Series: Conversations on Art and Architecture, and our art exhibits. Don't forget about our Musicians Corner program, which attracted 70,000 people to the park just this year and showcased over 100 emerging and established artists.

About #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners-nonprofits, businesses and corporations as well as families and individuals-to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday utilizes the power of social media to promote the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide.
